The only things you should avoid on P3 are sugary and starchy foods. Read through to the end to find a great solution to satisfy your sweet tooth! Now let’s deal with the sugary first and I will touch base on starchy foods on the next blog. The sugars that should be avoided are those sugars in cookies, cake, pie, candy, cupcakes, frosting, soft drinks, corn syrup, kool-aid, processed food, energy drinks, fruit juice, honey, yogurt, donuts, cookies, pudding, maple syrup, brownies, canned fruit in heavy syrup, ice cream, cool whip, boxed breakfast cereals, breakfast bars, granola.
As much as possible no sugar! And please it is very important to read labels of the food you are going to buy, especially when they come in package.
And remember, you’re avoiding starches too. Almost all packed or processed foods today contain high fructose corn syrup or some other kind of sugar. Allow me to name a few of those sugars that are found in processed foods;
- Brown sugar
- Corn syrup
- Demerara Sugar
- Free Flowing Brown Sugars
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- Invert Sugar
- Maple syrup
- Muscovado or Barbados Sugar
- Powdered or confectioner’s sugar
- Rice Syrup
- Sugar (granulated)
- Turbinado sugar
OK, so now that you know all those sugars to avoid, here’s the solution we promised: Stevia. It’s natural, many times sweeter than sugar, and has no calories. You can find it at any health food store. WARNING! It’s really strong! Just a quarter of a teaspoon is enough to sweeten any single serving, such as a cup of coffee or bowl of cereal etc. So get yourself a container of Stevia, and when you just have to sweeten something up, it’s a guilt free solution!
Ideally, if you have followed the HCG drops diet protocol properly, your sugar cravings are dramatically reduced by now.

If you have not known this then let me inform you especially HCG dieters, did you know the human body can hold up to 5lbs of stool in the body. You would gross for sure but that ‘s so true.
HCG dieters cannot escape constipation, in fact the more they are prone to constipation. This is easy to explain why; the truth is when you are on hcg diet you are consuming less solid foods. The 800 calories per day contains less solid food thus the regular bowel movements becomes irregular. It might take 3-4 days between bowel movement. And you might freak out already.
What causes these irregularities in the bowel movement is the lack of solid food along with the lack of water. Constipated is felt when you want to go to the restroom but nothing seems to come out and you feel the pain and difficulty of discharging the bowel.
If this should happen a few tips should be followed and the most common recommendation is drink plenty of water. Under the protocol, water is the beverage commonly reiterated to be taken in a day. The EZ Diet recommends that you drink ½ to 1 gallon of water per day.
However, if you still feel constipated try smooth move tea or senna tea once a day usually before going to bed to assist in regular bowel movements. If this is still not helpful enough, visiting a physician is best recommended.
It is quite natural that you may feel like munching on something in between meals. This is true whether you are on HCG or not. These cravings happen in the afternoon and evening times in particular and sometimes you just can’t help but quench it. However, when you want to shed weight, it is important to select snacks with caution, especially when you are on a HCG Diet Protocol. You can keep fruits in your fridge like apples and berries of various types to satisfy sudden hunger attacks. Avoid having caffeine based products and artificial drinks like flavored juices at all costs to control weight. Only water is allowed and be sure to drink lots of it.
Though you are on a strict diet, you can spread your meals and eat snacks to keep hunger pains away. Sometimes it is more advisable to drink water first (your body probably just needs rehydration), or if the hunger won’t go away, munch on something healthy and low in calories.
Apples have always been known as one of the best foods for you body. An Apple a day keeps the doctor away right? Apples in dessert (the most common part of a meal we crave) can be heavenly and healthy at the same time! Try this delicious HCG friendly dessert!
Core the inside of the apple being careful not to go all the way through the bottom. Sprinkle some stevia and cinnamon inside the apple. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Keep the skin on as it holds all the juices while it bakes. This is super delicious, you can tell even from the smell!!
Is the HCG Diet the right one for you? Have you made the right choice of HCG Drops to purchase? Here are a few tips to help you buy the right HCG Drops:
There are three, among many reasons, as to why the HCG diet is the most practical diet around: convenience, price and comfort.
HCG Drops are far superior to the old fashioned, outdated injections. HCG drops can be taken anywhere and need no refrigeration. It very handily and fits any bag or even in your jean pockets. While the injection method must be administered by a doctor, either in his clinic or by having him come over to your home. Either way, it is time-consuming.
Furthermore, the price of HCG drops is way cheaper than HCG injections which cost any from $700-$900 a shot. HCG EZ Drops roll sit at a pretty $$59.95 for a month supply, and you are getting the highest quality drops on the market.
Drops, are (obviously) much more comfortable than shots. All you have to do is pour the content of the drops under your tongue and wait 1-2 minutes til it’s properly absorbed. Much less discomfort than getting a daily dose injected into you everyday, for 21 days. Sounds a little to painful for me!

Everyone wants to have a soda every once in a while, and most of the time soda is a bad idea while on the HCG diet (it’s banned on phase 2). However, there are great alternatives to the store-bought soda, which can be much healthier for you, and it is approved on the HCG diet.
Most sodas you get from the store come sweetened with aspartame, which has adverse health effects, especially when dieting. Secondly, most sodas have high amounts of citric acid which can cause plateaus while on the HCG diet. And lastly, the high amount of sodium found in most diet sodas is bad to your health and can cause cravings or stalls.
As a great alternative, using the Soda Stream soda maker, you can create your own HCG diet sodas. It’s so simple: just add fresh squeezed orange juice, strawberries, lemons, apples, or whatever you would like, while controlling the amount of carbonation in your drink. This way you can create your own flavor, and be in complete control of the HCG diet soda, ensuring it to be tasty, refreshing, and most importantly healthy!
The HCG Diet has often brought up questions such as, ” should I do a body cleansing and detoxification before beginning the diet?” and “will doing so bring additional benefit?”
To begin with, let me re-iterate the purpose of HCG diet; the diet requires a dieter to stay in a very low calorie diet of either 800 or 1200 calorie diet per day following only a list of acceptable foods. Foods not found on the list are prohibited. Foods that contain carbohydrates and sugars should be eliminated from the diet entirely. To help the dieters live a healthier lifestyle, the diet plan requires the dieters to only choose all-natural foods which simply means replacing all conventional/processed food choices to organic ones. Conventional/processed foods contain additives and preservatives, antibiotics, hormones, and pesticides that may be the reason for health issues like obesity and other health risks such as heart attack, high blood pressure, diabetes and many more. HCG Diet helps eliminate much of the toxin buildup by only taking in the healthy food choices found in the list.
That being said, the HCG Diet works as cleansing and detoxification in and of itself. A dieter can start the HCG diet plan without doing a cleanse if he or she chooses to. However, if the dieter wishes to do cleansing and detoxification to make the diet plan more effective and quicker, yes this program can bring additional benefit to weight loss.
